Kalanchoe, Corrected

Don’t you hate it when you learn you’ve been wrong about something most of your life? I got my first kalanchoe (ka-lan-cho) as a teenager many, many years ago. We got this one 3 or 4 years ago in Utah. Today, I discovered via the Internet that it’s not a ka-lan-cho at all, but a ka-lan-ko-ee. You’d think my closest friend of 37 years — an expert horticulturist — would have corrected my pronunciation. Knowing him, though, he just enjoyed my folly and laughed about it silently on the inside when I erred. I hate that, too.

Enjoy the photo!

  1. Don’t feel like the Lone Ranger; people have been letting me pronounce protea ‘pro-TAY-ah’ instead of ‘PRO-tee-ah’ for at least 20 years. Grrrrr! I had never seen a kalanchoe before, but your mysterious photo makes me want to see more of them.
